What is the Deer Tribe Metis Medicine Society (DTMMS)?
In this world of “New Age” everything, it is very hard to separate fact from fiction. Sometimes, the old ways just might be the right spiritual path. In any event, tradition should at least get a vote when you are looking for a path to pursue. One such path that has withstood the test of time and still has a global student body is the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path of Turtle Island taught through the Deer Tribe Metis Medicine Society. Through traditional teachings and ceremonies, their vision is to inspire beauty, excellence, and knowledge so that all people gain direct access to peace, happiness and a higher sense of purpose.
As a non-profit organization, the Deer Tribe Metis Medicine Society (DTMMS) brings together spiritual seekers from around the world who are interested in awakening the potential for an enlightened planet. DTMMS is the parent organization of the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path. Their vision is to inspire beauty, excellence, and knowledge so that all people gain direct access to peace, happiness and a higher sense of purpose.
What is the Sweet Medicine Sundance Path and What Makes It Special?
The Sweet Medicine SunDance Path (SMSD) of Turtle Island is a culmination of this wisdom that has been shared, tested and preserved. The teachings, ceremonies and approaches to life derive from the ancient wisdom gathered from many wise men and women of Turtle Island, which today are the lands known as North, South and Central America, Australia and New Zealand. The word ‘metis’ honors the different heritages of these lineages.
Wheels? What Does It Mean that the Teachings are Taught in a “Wheel Format”?
The teachings of the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path are presented in a format called “wheels.” This word takes its name from the interconnections that exist among ideas and truths. It provides a way of understanding that stretches the imagination and is said to activate the innate knowledge all humans have within them.
The teaching wheels are transmitted by teachers who, after decades of devoted study in this tradition, carry the “keys” to unlock the knowledge within the mysteries. The conservation of these teachings through Wheels and Keys ensures that the sacred knowledge of the lineage is protected and will live on to empower generations to come.
Apprentice On The Path? What is that? What Will This Path Do For Me?
Apprentices are spiritual seekers who study and practice the Sweet Medicine SunDance teachings and ceremonies. These apprentices gain ongoing self-empowerment and healing that allows them to experience greater pleasure in their own unique naturalness. The Deer Tribe Metis Medicine Society (DTMMS) envisions a world where people, paths and traditions come together in a solutions-oriented approach to healing the planet and living in beauty.
